Residents of Tehran have compared protest scenes to a “war zone,” while celebrities such as Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner, Sharon Stone, and Hailey Bieber have expressed outrage over Mahsa’s killing.

Mahsa, 22 years old, passed away a week ago after being imprisoned by Tehran’s morality police for reportedly not wearing her hijab correctly and breaking the country’s rigorous dress code.

The actress, who played Sansa Stark in the famous HBO series, uploaded a photo of Mahsa along with the following comment on her Instagram Stories: “No woman should be harassed for choosing what to wear or standing up for her rights.”

According to a New York-based human rights organization, at least 36 individuals were slain during the protests.

However, an anchor on Iran’s state television speculated that the death toll from the large rallies could reach 26, though he did not clarify or explain how he arrived at that number.

According to the internet traffic monitor Netblocks, the country has also barred internet access to the outside world and restricted popular services such as Instagram and WhatsApp.

In response to the statewide protests, state-sponsored demonstrations began in numerous Iranian cities on Friday, with marchers calling for the execution of rioters.

A citizen of the Iranian capital Tehran told MailOnline, “Last night, numerous areas of the city resembled a battle zone.” People were throwing rocks at the police, who responded by shooting rubber bullets and tear gas directly at them. I also heard gunshots, but I assume they were fired into the air.

“Last night, the crowd began to gather at approximately 7:00 p.m., and the fighting went beyond midnight,” he added.

Last night was more hectic than previous evenings, and I heard more gunfire. A tire was set on fire in the middle of the road.

Another resident in the capital told MailOnline that he had observed unidentified armed men on the rooftops of homes in a Tehran neighborhood.

I observed them last evening. I have not witnessed them firing, but they were merely determining who goes where. ‘They will likely be arrested later,’ he said.

He continued, “Locals are closing their businesses early these days.”

Thursday, Iranian media reported the arrest of 288 protesters.

The Iranian protests began as an emotional outburst at the death of Mahsa Amini, who was detained by the country’s morality police for allegedly breaching the country’s rigidly enforced dress code.

The authorities claim she died of a heart attack and was not abused, but her family disputes these claims.

This week, Iran’s state-run television reported hundreds of people demonstrating in at least 13 locations, including the capital, Tehran.

This week, Iran’s state-run television reported hundreds of people demonstrating in at least 13 locations, including the capital, Tehran.

The Iranian government enforced internet restrictions and restricted access to WhatsApp and Instagram.

According to the semi-official Fars news agency, it is no longer allowed to access Instagram or WhatsApp in Iran as a result of a decision made by government officials on Wednesday evening.

After the blocking of other platforms in recent years, including Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, YouTube, and TikTok, these two applications became the most popular in Iran.

This comes after thirteen Iranian legislators urged the government to use stronger actions against the demonstrators.

Officials have denied that security forces have killed protestors, indicating that they may have been slain by armed rebels, although video footage allegedly shows police officers firing directly at individuals.

After the Friday prayer, individuals in Tehran and other cities planned to hold a counter-protest gathering.

Furthermore, the extreme feminist activist organization Femen organized a semi-naked demonstration in front of the Iranian embassy in Madrid, Spain.

They also bore the inscription “Woman, life, freedom” on their chests.

These desperate acts are part of the enemy’s nefarious plan to weaken the Islamic state, according to the army.

Since Amini’s death was announced on September 16, three days after her detention in Tehran, protests have extended to the majority of Iran’s main urban centers, including the capital as well as Isfahan, Mashhad, Rasht, and Saqez.

Unprecedented photographs depict protesters defacing or burning images of the supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the late commander of the Revolutionary Guards, Qasem Soleimani.

Amnesty International and other human rights organizations allege that in reaction, security officers have fired birdshot and metal pellets at protesters as well as used tear gas and water cannons.

Iranian media said that pro-government rallies were scheduled for Friday.

As fury over Amini’s death showed no signs of abating, protesters in Tehran and other cities have reportedly set police stations and vehicles on fire and attacked security forces.

Iran’s army issued a warning on Friday that it will “confront the enemies” to protect national security.

 

 

 

The army stated, “These desperate attempts are part of the enemy’s nefarious plan to undermine the Islamic regime.”

The killing of Amini has sparked concern over issues such as limits on personal liberties in Iran, such as severe clothing standards for women, and a faltering economy as a result of sanctions.

Iran’s clerical rulers fear a repeat of the deadliest protests in Islamic Republic history, which erupted in 2019 over gasoline price hikes.

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, 64, canceled an interview with Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi, 61, at the United Nations in New York on Wednesday after he reportedly ordered her to wear a headscarf in the midst of civil turmoil in Tehran following the murder of a pro-democracy demonstrator in detention.

Amanpour, who is British-Iranian and grew up in Tehran, reportedly pointed out that she was not wearing a headscarf during her interview with former Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Amanpour posted on Instagram, “We are in New York, where there is neither a law nor a custom respecting headscarves.” I mentioned that none of the prior Iranian presidents I’ve interviewed outside of Iran had requested this.

Bebe Rexha, an American artist, also reacted to Twitter, uploading a photo of Mahsa and declaring, “I stand with female Persians in their battle for freedom.” There were 63,600 likes for the post at the time of writing.

The 25-year-old American model and wife of Justin Bieber, Hailey Bieber, posted photos of Mahsa on her Instagram Stories.

President Raisi of Iran has recently stated that he has reached out to Mahsa’s family as protests spread across Iran. Ebrahim Raisi stated during a press conference at the UN General Assembly in New York that the death of Mahsa Amini while in the custody of the morality police’must be thoroughly probed’

Several government websites have reportedly been hacked, and the hacker collective Anonymous has declared cyber war against the Iranian Government.

Some platforms advise Iranians to utilize Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) in order to access content that has been banned by the government.

Mahsa was pronounced brain dead and passed away in the hospital three days after allegedly being beaten by Iran’s morality police.

 

 

 

On September 13th, she was arrested near a Tehran metro station for failing to conform to Iran’s rigorous hijab requirements. She was reportedly jailed for what was characterized as a “re-education program.”

According to leaked CT images obtained by a London-based news organization known as Iran International, she was hospitalized hours later with a skull fracture ‘induced by a direct blow’ and internal hemorrhage.

According to the news organization, doctors stated that Mahsa had blood and fluid in her lungs since she entered a coma shortly after getting a blow to the head.

Jake Sullivan, the national security adviser of the United States, said that the Iranian government should be held accountable for human rights breaches.

According to reports, Tehran officials initially stated that Mahsa died of a heart attack and later claimed that she had epilepsy, a claim that her father has refuted.

Iran has required all women, even tourists, to wear a headscarf since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
